what are antifas views on antispe? we dont have a local one where i am from and ive felt really disrespectef by my fellow local antifa activists when it came to me being ridiuled and mocked for being vegan. veganism is part of world peace!
“Antifa” is an abbreviation of the word “antifascist.” There are so many antifa in so many places with so many different viewpoints that it’s impossible to expect that they will all agree on a given topic or issue beyond the need to oppose fascism and racism.
So some antifa may be fully supportive of veganism and see speciesism as another form of oppression worth opposing; others might not.
That said, we know far more antifascists who are also against speciesism and/or vegan than we do any other category of political belief.
Mocking someone for being vegan seems pretty bloody ignorant to us, especially if doing so is alienating an ally in the fight against hate. We’re sorry you’ve had that experience and we hope you find fellow anti-fascists elsewhere that won’t be so judge-y about what you eat and why you choose to live your life the way you do.
As for those that mocked you; take comfort in the fact that, as a vegan, you’ll probably outlive them anyway!
